Anti-pipeline blockade in Mohawk community still active after agreement reached
A blockade in a Mohawk community is still in place after an agreement on land rights was reached by government ministers and Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is trying to appease law-breakers while also not upsetting everyday Canadians, leaving no one happy.
Trudeau officially called for the blockades to come down. “All Canadians are paying the price… Essential goods cannot get to where they need to go. The situation where it currently stands is unacceptable and untenable,” said Trudeau.
The RCMP offered to leave their position on Wet’suwet’en territory—a move Public Safety Minister Bill Blair says he’s hopeful will lead to a resolution.
